ROCHESTER, N.Y.-U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that Dkeidron Dublin, 40, of Rochester, NY, who was convicted of possession with intent to distribute cocaine and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime, was sentenced to serve 72 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Frank P. Geraci, Jr.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew McGrath, who handled the case, stated that Dublin was arrested on May 19, 2021, as part of a long-term investigation into a Rochester drug trafficking organization led by co-defendant Jason Siplin. On that date, investigators intercepted a phone call between Dublin, and another co-defendant Timothy Granison, during which they discussed, in coded language, Granison resupplying Dublin with drugs. Later that day, Granison’s vehicle arrived at Dublin’s Birch Crescent residence. Dublin got into Granison’s vehicle at which time both were taken into custody. During a search of the vehicle and Dublin’s residence, investigators recovered 31 grams of cocaine, $1,241.00 in United States currency, drug packaging materials, and a semiautomatic pistol, which was found in Dublin’s residence.

The fact that a defendant has been charged with a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.  

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the New York State Police, under the direction of Major Barry Chase, the Rochester Police Department, under the direction of Interim Chief David Smith, the Greater Rochester Area Narcotics Enforcement Team, and Homeland Security Investigations, under the direction of Acting Special Agent-in-Charge Matthew Scarpino.
